MSI Kombustor 4 - main GUI

A new PhysX 4 test has been added: PhysX 4 CPU medium++. The main goal of this test is to increase the CPU workload in CPU PhysX mode. With some Core i7/i8/i9, with at least 6 or more physcial cores, the overall core usage was around 50% with previous PhysX 4 CPU medium test. Now the medium++ test increases the overall core usage to around 80%. More boxes have been added and the number of PhysX solver iterations has been pushed up.

The PhysX 4 engine is the latest version 4.1.1 released by NVIDIA few days ago.

    Anyone having problems running (GL) msi-02 (PhysX4 GPU – hard)? My laptop won’t run it and it doesn’t produce any error. Tests like (GL) msi-02 (PhysX4 GPU – medium++) and (GL) msi-02 (PhysX4 GPU – medium) run fine without any trouble.
